(01 Oct 2021) Simpson Marine has sold two Sanlorenzo yachts, a SD118 and the latest addition to Sanlorenzo’s Asymmetrical range, the SL90A.
Both luxury yachts are scheduled to be delivered to their respective and undisclosed customers in 2022.
“I’m delighted to witness the strong brand trust and growing interest in Sanlorenzo in Asia,” said Nick Stratton, Sanlorenzo Asia Sales Manager. “It has been an incredible year for the brand in the region with many new yachts being delivered and enjoyed by their owners. These two new sales are just the start of an exciting adventure ahead for their owners.”
The 35.7 metre long and 8 metre beam semi-displacement SD118 was first introduced by the shipyard in summer 2021. It is the first SD model to have the innovative Sanlorenzo-patented Asymmetrical design, which was successfully introduced on to SL-line planing yacht models (SL90A–SL120A).
The SD118 has space for up to 10 guests (and six crew members) accommodated in five cabins. Its sleek exterior was designed by the shipyard’s long-term reputed Italian design partners, Zuccon International Project.
A restyled stern with a 19 sqm beach terrace with foldable side terraces is a stand out feature that allows for an expansive outdoor living space while providing storage for a 5.2m tender.
The 31 sqm forward outdoor living area of the SD118 is organised on two connected levels, the upper deck and the forward deck. These provide an area for open air relaxation, with direct access to from the full beam 45 sqm forward cabin by means of a sliding hatch which is concealed below the staircase connecting the two decks in order to ensure privacy. The 57sqm flybridge is fitted with movable branded furniture, and a wet bar.
The 290 GT yacht is powered by two Caterpillar C32 Acert diesel engines, which will allow her to cruise comfortably at 10 knots, with 2500 nautical miles of extensive autonomy, and reach a top speed of 19 knots.
Also designed by Zuccon International Project, the 27.6m SL90 Asymmetric was unveiled at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival without prior announcement.
The SL90A’s asymmetrical configuration allows for a layout with the owner’s cabin and main deck saloon on the same level, a design solution normally found on larger yachts.
The owner’s cabin benefits from dedicated access to the bow area, while the flybridge and the bow area are connected to each other and feature a sundeck integrated into the full-beam superstructure.
The SL90A features “One Way” glazing which externally is chromatically similar to the hull and dematerialises the perception of empty spaces, giving a sense of cleanliness and aesthetic continuity.
Another new design feature is a raised pilothouse on the main deck, which increases the feeling of internal space. This allows for plenty of light throughout the main deck saloon, which spreads across 31.5 sqm and connects to a 19.5 sqm cockpit, making a common living area of 50 sqm.
A 20 sqm master suite on the main deck forward is spread across three distinctive levels including the master bedroom, bathroom and dressing room.
Powered by two MAN 2000 HP engines the SL90A will cruise fast and comfortably at 25 knots with a maximum speed of 29 knots.
The new sales of the SL90A and SD118 add to an increasingly successful sales track record for Sanlorenzo in Asia. Notable new models sold into the region include metal superyachts such as the 52Steel, 500EXP and The Alloy, and composite yachts from the SX, SL and SD ranges including the SX112, SL102A, SL96A, SD96 among others.
